This unique landscape captures the essence of creating a space for play and fun, providing an exciting, interactive, child-friendly adventure playground.
The owners were after an adventurous, sensory garden with a large turfed area between the house and the pool area. They also requested the large existing trees remain, and screening to the rear, east and south sides of the house. The biggest challenge was connecting the large existing decked area of the pavilion with the remaining backyard, which is considerably lower.
The existing pool shell lies at the lowest point of the site, which meant connectivity between the pavilion and the pool was vital, with a couple of landings that lead to the garden shed, an outdoor shower and turfed area.
Providing both texture and interest for the client and their children, this garden entices you to explore every corner.
Designed and constructed to complement the building, this landscape provides a private sanctuary sitting within the context of a coastal garden.
A custom swimming pool and slide, feature granite stonework, off-form concrete walls, exposed aggregate concrete paving, custom grow meshes, and timber fences and gates are just some of the stunning features of this unique project.
The driveway was designed with reinforced turf so that the building floats over the green-banked lawn space. Custom granite boulders and block walls to the rear of the property feature textured stone panels, while off-form concrete walls connect with the architecture.
Landscape lighting includes in-ground up lights, recessed deck lights, spike spots, wall spots and recessed underwater lights.
Existing Norfolk Pine and Casuarina equisetifolia trees were retained, while hardy natives were added. Furthermore, the kitchen garden on the roof terrace is planted with citrus, passionfruit and herbs, while a bamboo garden on the south side addresses the verticality of the architecture.
